Rosanna Wan



Rosanna is the Ri’s current animator-in-residence and spends her time making animated videos on all things science-y.


Rosanna’s interest in animation started at a young age when she first watched Yuri Norstein’s ‘Hedgehog in the Fog’. She studied Illustration & Animation at university, then studied just a little more animation for her post-graduate degree and has been freelancing ever since.

Scientific Inspiration

I’ve always loved the look of scientific diagrams – especially when it comes to biology and anatomy. I’m just generally interested in ecological topics as well – anything that deepens a connection between humans and the world around us.
